Help Support Bro/Sis' College Students
This year we will be sending another cohort of young people off to a range of colleges and universities across the country.  

Unfortunately, getting them to college is only half the battle. College freshmen have a 30% dropout rate.  Sadly, finances play a big role.  38% of students cannot afford to stay in school, and 71% have necessary jobs that prevent them from completing their education.  Many times, it's the costs beyond tuition that can hold a student back - such as room and board, books and supplies, meals, travel costs, etc.  At Bro/Sis, we understand this challenge, and proactively seek to alleviate the financial barriers that our predominately first generation college bound members routinely face.    
 
The first year of college can be exhilarating and also overwhelming.  The last thing a student should have to worry about are the financial obstacles that can derail their education.  

That is why we are asking you to help us make our college bound seniors first-year in school a little easier, by ensuring that they have all the resources and tools they need to succeed.
